What would Young Citizens look like on TV?

With the help of Shaw’s community channel, Manitoba’s Young Citizens put together their own shows. Their videos were the content, and the Young Citizens themselves played hosts and guests for the programs. We’ve included a few sample clips below, but the full list of videos can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlnSk1pC-PbjFntMmUQC3vcb4BBn3QvDr
